Give Thanks Quilt - Stampin' Up! Christmas Quilt

  Today's card is one that can be used to send out at Thanksgiving or for a general thank you card.  The Painted Autumn Harvest DSP gives this card a nice fall feeling.  I'm sharing this one at the SUO Challenge this week as their theme is Being Thankful.

  The card base is Very Vanilla thick.  Then a smaller layer in Soft Sky is stamped with the little flower shape in Soft Sky ink.

  The quilt panel is put together with the Painted Autumn Harvest DSP and Early Espresso cardstock. I layered it over the top of a piece of jute twine.  The sentiment from Labels to Love is stamped in Early Espresso and then punched out with the 1 3/8" circle punch.  An adhesive pearl finishes off the center of the quilt.

  This isn't a complicated card but does take a bit of time to piece the quilt.  One tip that I think is helpful is that after you get the frame (the Early Espresso piece on my card) glued down is to put the glue inside the frame for each section and press the DSP piece into the glue instead of trying to put the glue on the small DSP'll keep your fingers clean and it will help not get extra glue around your frame.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
